Coaching Tips and Questions for VUCA Times

What is the ASU First-Year Success Center?

The First-Year Success Center (FYS) is an award-winning, high-impact, dynamic Center that treats every student like a VIP through a variety of peer coaching services. Success coaching empowers students to thrive both inside and outside the classroom, and it’s customized to individual interests, strengths, and needs. Demonstrating how the right person at the right time can change a life, FYS coaches work with students on everything from transition (adjusting to college life) to transformation (realizing potential and dreams). FYS coaches answer questions about college life and provide insider tips and advice on academics, getting involved, finding scholarships, and more.

The right person at the right time can change a life.
